First Birthday Pillowcase Outfit for Annabelle

Here is Annabelle's first birthday pillowcase outfit. It was a pool party, so I felt the water theme embroidery was appropriate. I dispensed with the dress idea and went with a ruffled cargo pant and top.

Pillowcase Dress

Eilene picked her own fabric for her first pillowcase dress. This was the prototype for a pillowcase dress for my grand niece Annabelle. My sister asked me to make a pillowcase dress for Annabelle's first birthday. I had to add the monkey applique for my little monkey.

My first attempt at redwork

Here is Eilene in her Christmas redwork. I figure if you are born on Christmas, it is appropriate to wear redwork.

If Friends Were Flowers...

My friend Sheila had a birthday. She is so dear to me, and she has been redecorating her house. I love the yellows, green, purple and fuschia, and her white couch! So I got out the silk ribbons and made her something special. Here it is. I am sooooo glad others took the time to teach me how to sew, and that I am constantly filled with inspiration from people like Sheila for beautiful ideas!
